Hello again folks. Long time since I have been on here, to be honest I have kinda neglected the forums of recent years.....

Anyway, hope you don't mind my tapping in to the vast fonts of knowledge that exist within this fine site. I am trying to identify an equivalent to Sipea 0444 4J or 4F or perhaps even 7L.... Anyway does anybody have a schematic of these relays as I am looking for a replacement/equivalent? I gather that in old Sipea speak 0444 denotes normally closed, while 0440 is normally open. What do the 6/7 number plus letters represent?- I assume it is down to amperage, but who knows.Also what does this relay actuallly do? It sames to me to be connected with the brake pad warning/brake fluid reservoir warning light.........
Here's where my confusion arises. A few kind souls have given me pics etc of the relays installed in their cars, and the 87 pins seem to be labelled 87 and 87b. I can find no such equivalent aftermarket, but I can get normally closed with pins 87 and 87a (I have one). What is the significance of difference in the pin labelling?
Anyway, photos links below if it helps, plus a diagram showing the voltage as present at the fuse box pins for that relay. This was taken at another car, but mine seems to follow the pattern. The last - black - relay is the one I think is the equivalent. All very confusing.....

I have no information on specific relay manufacturers' part numbers, but the standard terminal designations are here

If in doubt, you can always carefully remove the cover and look inside Very Happy
